old M.Tech. (Computational Science) Program (existed upto July-2018)

The M.Tech. (Computational Sciences) at CDS is a unique inter-disciplinary program that brings together the domain-specific knowledge of science and engineering with relevant areas of computing and mathematics. It educates and trains students to ‘model’ problems or ‘simulate’ processes varying across many disciplines in science and engineering.

The M.Tech. program in Computational Science starts in August and spans 2 years (4 semesters). In the first year, students are exposed to fundamental concepts of Computational Science such as data structures and programming, modelling and simulation, mathematical and computational tools. The second year offers students several fields of specialization through elective courses. The program culminates with a computational science dissertation project in their second year.
